Hi, I am looking for the best IEM available for ~$100. I understand that there many options, but here are my specific needs:
- Listen to classical music (and music where it's all about instruments), alternative rock, pop music, and other mainstream music. Nothing too hardcore for my ears that would make it bleed or hurt.
- Can block outside noises decently (I don't know if noise-cancellation is what I'm looking for)--I commute for at least 2 hours each day on a bus. I also don't want people to be able to hear what I'm listening to if I turn the music to a decent volume in a very quiet room.
- Comfort is key (this will probably not be a problem, but I have small ears. I have interchangeable ear "caps" from my previous Seinheisser CX500). I currently use my ATH-AD700 headphones for at least 8 hours just on the computer--it can get pretty tiresome on the ears.
Right now, it seems that the Klipsch Image X10 is good, but I'm not sure if I can get better for $90 it's selling on Amazon.
Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks a lot in advance, I will be checking back on this thread periodically until there are no more responses.
